Dragon CRS-5 supply spacecraft returned to Earth.
10:59

On February 10, 2015 the station's robotic arm removed the “Dragon” unmanned supply spacecraft from a berthing port on the Harmony module of the International Space Station. Controlled by ground controllers and then astronaut Samantha Cristoforetti (Italy), the robotic arm let go of the "Dragon” resupply vehicle at 19:10 UTC

On February 11, 2015 at 00:44 UTC the "Dragon” capsule splashed down in the Pacific Ocean at about 260 miles (480 kilometers) southwest of Long Beach, California, USA. The Dragon delivered to Earth about 1700 kilograms (3700 pounds) of cargo. It was the "SpaceX CRS-5” mission. CRS means Commercial Resupply Services.
